Packed full of gorgeous, well photographed images, Contemporary Living Space highlights the best of international living spaces from luxury homes to the less-often featured but very important variety of well-designed apartment spaces.
Sleek and ultra modern, these spaces are light, airy, and utilize elements like recycled wood and eco-friendly lighting. Both aesthetically appealing and smart, the spaces featured are the result of the designers' well-thought out choices for everything from window framing to sink fixtures to heating methods to furniture elements.

Floor plans included.

No longer confined to a flat medium, illustration has been liberated to new heights of fancy limited solely by the imaginations of today’s leading artists. Some employ paper cutting to create multilayered worlds that you look into rather than upon. Others work with fabric or thread, embroidering colorful conceptual masterpieces that have the ability to shock or surprise. Still others make use of mixed media, not wishing to be limited by choice of material when crafting their individual visions. Whether two or three dimensional, each of the artworks featured reflect an entirely unique voice, which expands upon the very definition of illustration. Artists include Gregory Euclide, Frank Plant, Chris Maynard, Christine Kim, Bovey Lee, and Irma Gruenholz.

Graphic designers and illustrators are today’s cartographers, charting lands real and mythic, from gorgeous renderings in the fields of travel and recreation to stylized representations of the worlds of our favorite games or fantasy series. Tangible or virtual, maps have the singular ability to show us our place in the world, from where we are to where we are going. At the same time, they can convey information in a graphic way that enhances our experience of those places through creative embellishment. Some include infographics, which elevate their functionality, while others offer beautiful simplicity, incorporating stunning artwork more appropriate for gallery walls. Whereas the mapmakers of previous centuries used their abilities on limiting the unknown, today’s pioneering designers are focused on showing us what is possible.

It is easy to see why brands often turn to depictions of animals in their identity materials. A brand can turn to the figure of an animal to evoke freedom, pride, or power, or just as easily associate themselves with loyalty, reliability, or playfulness. Restaurants may use them to artistically touch on the contents of their menu or their particular ideology; corporations to distinguish themselves in a world of plain symbols and vector art. Animal Graphics explores the wide range of possibilities with animal imagery, capturing these wild designs in their native habitats of artwork, publications, and personal and corporate branding and identities.

More than 100 invitations are gathered in RSVP – Invitations for Gatherings and Special Occasions, a collection of enticing event announcements from around the world. The designs inside reveal personal and professional invitations too special to be delegated to pre-printed cards or generic digital notifications. Some embody the nature of the event, such as an architectural invitation printed on blueprints, or the announcement of a fashion film festival printed on transparent paper that resembles film stock. Others serve to reflect a celebration’s setting, such as an outdoor wedding invitation that can be folded into cardstock teepees. And some simply provide a fun and memorable nudge for the recipient to join in the festivities, as seen in a connect-the-dot invitation that has to be played to reveal the event’s details. With an eye for detail and passion for unique materials as well as intricate design, the pieces featured help to prove that sometimes an invitation can be just as exciting as the event itself.

Type Player 3 displays the best of types that demonstrate how designers don’t just design type, but turn it into a subject of play with letters that go beyond the page to capture the unique needs and aesthetic preferences of designers and brands. The words and letters within exist as physical objects that embody the messages they spell out in their very design — items of clothing demonstrate exactly what it means to be “colorful,” long nights working on deadlines are represented in buzzing neon, and delicate curls of smoke show how beautiful a reminder in text can be. Type Player 3 contains creative examples collected worldwide, including editorial work, illustration, fashion, hand-made objects and environmental subjects, with 240 pages of lettering created from flowers, raindrops, food, and even the human body itself. The sequel to the best-selling Type Player 2, this title is essential for anyone looking for provocative new ways to get their message across.

The follow-up to the bestselling Paper Works, this title continues the exploration of paper as the ultimate artists material. From an award-winning documentary to a nationally touring museum exhibition, paper is no longer a blank canvas for other media, but has become the media itself. Follow artists and designers from around the world who cut, fold and sculpt paper to new heights of creativity, and develop new techniques that open up doors of expression. In two or three dimensions, full color or monochromatic, the effects are limitless. Some designs are geometric, creating real or imagined cityscapes _ others delicately trace the fluidity of a jellyfishs tentacles or the movement of water. Projects include fashion, jewelry and furniture design, origami, sculpture and installation art.

The follow-up volume to our bestselling Installation Art, this is the most impressive collection of renowned avant-garde installation pieces to-date. Only top-tier projects are featured including biennale pieces from many countries. Interior gallery and museum installations encourage poetic new ways of looking at enclosed space, while exterior projects on both large and small scales astound through their dramatic use of materials and reinvent the urban and rural built environment. Pink balloons are suspended in rows above the the main thoroughfare of a major city, a prism of color threads hung in the air makes an otherwise blasé staircase magical, thin rays of light hover in space, a hole in a gallery wall reveals an entire hidden realm composed of layered ice blocks, while neoclassical arched windows pour transparent crystallized ice flows onto marble floors. This beautiful book completely changes how we look at our everyday surroundings and their possibilities.
